a trip up to Hatfield~

Today, I had to go to Hatfield (somewhere north of Borehamwood, Herts) for an interview at a jobcenter plus for my NI number. So as usual, Remy tagged along.

We took the bus to New Barnet station, and then took the train to Hatfield. I must admit, the place is quite picturesque….

When we were happily wandering around the graves and tombs, Remy a bit of a scare when 2 big fat squirrels suddenly darted from around the corner of the church 2 feet in front of him and scampered off into a great big tree, chasing each other and squeeking occasionally.

Asides from the overexcited fauna (Remy included), Hatfield is also lush and full of huge old trees, colourful flowers and odd-looking plants.

Remy had a bit of fun romping around a patch of daisies, and another patch of ivy….

After the interview, we made out way back to New Barnet. We took a walk around the area as well, and stopped by Sainsbury’s to buy tonight’s dinner….
